Robert Duncan (1919–1988) was associated with movements including the San Francisco Renaissance, the New American Poetry, and the Black Mountain school. Called “one of the most accomplished, one of the most influential” of the postwar American poets by Kenneth Rexroth, he was also a pioneering figure in gay culture and politics, publishing the essay “The Homosexual in Society” in 1944. Recent editions of his work include The H. D. Book: The Collected Writings of Robert Duncan (University of California), Ground Work: Before the War/In the Dark, A Selected Prose, and Selected Poems (all New Directions).
